I have an 11 year old son who is unhappy, does not smile, gets angry at his brothers and sisters, yells alot and then blames me for his unhappiness. I don't know what to do. He was very into Games Workshop-painting figures-not really playing games but I felt those figures were scary! He would read the books about these War Hammer creatures and then he started wearing his sweatshirt with a hood on in school. He has recently been disinterested in War Hammer stuff but still wears his hood to school and still very angry. We've started seeing a therapist who is very caring but I still don't know how to deal with him at home. I've tried getting him involved in sports but he refuses and wants to come home and play on the computer doing Mine Craft with his friends every day. I don't feel like he respects me anymore because I've resorted to yelling at home because I just get so frustrated. Then I feel guilty and helpless. Any ideas, any suggestions would be helpful. I also worry about his diet, is he depressed? is this normal for 11 year old boys?
